Attendance (29)
Is anyone else having issues with attendance not clearing from the database after you change it on the attendance page? It's not a huge deal to go to DDA and clear it out, but it should work better than that.

What version of PS are you on? We just upgraded to 12.1.4 and nothing's been reported to me (knock on wood).

12.1.3. I wonder if it will get fixed in the update. 

Thanks for the input.

Release notes are here: https://support.powerschool.com/article/83650

Here's what I found about attendance, not sure it's related to your issue: 
When using the Attendance Change function to create attendance, comments are being copied from another period and saving them with the attendance record that it created. This issue is now resolved.

Is anyone else having a problem with the NSSRS Student Summary Attendance getting stuck in Report Que in PowerSchool?

I have tried it with the entire school and with just a couple of grades and it will not finish processing.

I have restarted ReportWorks and that finally stopped it (it would not cancel either).

Any thoughts?

Thank you

The reason was the PS update that came out on 6-8-18 - PS was supposed to apply the update but did not - even though I reported the issue to them earlier in the week.

Aimee Muehling let me know that this is known PS issues, they released the fix late Friday. The fix came down with the security update. If you run the latest release that will fix the problem see below

PowerSchool Release NotificationPowerSchool SIS 12.0.1.0

It is now corrected.

Is there a way to run a report on student absences that shows unexcused absences vs excused absences?
Thanks

Is it possible to pull all school attendance rates for previous school years?

You can run the ADA/ADM report for any year by simply changing the term.  Not sure if that's what you are looking for.

I'm not sure what they need. It's for the Blue Ribbon School application, I think. I was able to run the ADA/ADM by Date report under System Reports. Is that the report you were referring to, Kris? 

I'm being asked if there's a report that shows attendance as a percentage. Any ideas?

The high school I'm at has been doing both period attendance and daily attendance. Really wonky and no one has been able to explain why. So we have a new principal and she wants to change to just period attendance. Do most high schools use period attendance? Can anyone think of why we would not want to switch to period attendance for the new year? Thanks!

At our high school, we use only period attendance.  It works very well for tracking attendance and tardies.  We use daily attendance for our elementary only since they do not go by periods.

We use period attendance also the only thing to be careful with is setting up your attendance conversion it can only be 1 decimal place for NSSRS reporting.  We have 9 periods so it is set up as 1 period missed is .8, 2=.7, 3=.6, 4=.5, 5=.4, 6=.3, 7=.2, 8=.1, 9=0

I had a request at NEPSUG to post the attendance reports that prints the attendance comments. I found these on a web site, but it looks like they are no longer posted. I am attaching the zip file for the two reports called Student Attendance List.rpt and Attendance Detail - Students.rpt. They are similar but different in format.

Save and unzip the file. Go to System Reports > Engine tab > Load One Local Report. Select Browse and find the file to import. Select Import. Repeat the process for the second file.

You have to go to System Reports > Engine tab to run the reports.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I have a couple of rural school kids who are going to take Driver's Ed via DL. I used Enroll in Another School to get them in the class. What I'm worried about is Attendance, ADA/ADM, and anything else that would affect NSSRS. Does anyone have any experience with this and have any advice for me?

We have a student that only takes band with us. We do report the student in NSSRS.  He has a FTE of .2 so he doesn't really count because the FTE must be 50 percent or more but we do all the templates for them.

I am having a few issues with attendance at our district.  Some of the schools had errors in the calendar setup, some had scheduling issues and errors, and etc.   I am trying to fix everything and get it going before our Student Summary Attendance reports are due.  Out of five schools, I think one is working correctly and has everything set up as it should be!    I know part of our issue is incomplete schedules at one school.   However, I have an issue with one day at the high school that shows a zero for attendance in the ADA/ADM for all students.   The date is the last day of school, shows in-session, shows the correct day and bell schedule, yet when you look, it is already showing no attendance for students that day.    I am including a screen shot here:  (The date in issue is 5/20/14.)





 Any ideas?

Have you checked that your calendar shows 1 for Membership Value?

Membership (your 181) is calculated from the Calendar's Membership Value.

Attendance (160.2) is calculated by the Attendance Conversion that is attached to the Bell Schedule that is set for the specific day in the calendar.

For 5/20, where the Attendance value is 0. I would check the Attendance Conversion associated with that day's Bell Schedule.

Also, the Membership value and the Attendance values should equal for days in the future. The 16th & 19th has 1 membership point, but only allows 0.8 of an attendance point.

Remember to refresh attendance anytime you make a change to the attendance setup.  Special Functions > Attendance Functions  > Refresh Premier Attendance Views Data.

I ran the refresh attendance and I still get a zero in the day for May 20, 2014.   So, when you print out a report, it will show every student has an absence already.   My calendar set up looks the same for that day as the days before.  I wanted to attach a screen shot, but can't in a comment. 

The .8 days are because this particular student has an incomplete schedule on top of this other issue.  It's really fun here this year!!!!

I sent this into powersource, but really need an answer more quickly than their recent response times have been!

Does anyone use the attendance tracking at all?  If so, thoughts?

Also, is there an easy export to get students with more than 5 days absent, etc?   I think I have it, but just want to see if there are better ideas than what I am doing.

Hi Joan,

I find that attendance tracking does not work for us after 1st semester as we start counting over again at the beginning of 2nd semester.  We send letters to parents when students get to their 6th absence and again at 10.  So this is what I do:

I set up a custom page called Attendance with 2 fields on it.  6th Attendance Letter Sent (field name 6attendance) and 10th Attendance Letter Sent (field name 10attendance).  Then I created 2 stored searches:
1.  6th Absences with the search criteria of:
         *attendance_points>=6
         6attendance=
2.  10th Absences with the search criteria of:
         *attendance_points>=10
          10attendance=

When I run the search it looks for anyone with 6 or 10 absences and does not have a date in the letter sent field.  I then send the letter and enter the date in the letter sent field. 

This works well for us, but I am certainly open to  anything easier!  Please share if you find something wonderful.
        



I've never used it nor set it up, was trying but not getting it to work correctly.  We are needing some way that is not too difficult to find students who have missed 5 days or more, and 10 days or more....we use period to day as our attendance mode.

Does anyone know how I can change the timeout option for PowerTeacher Attendance? Teachers would rather not have to log in each period to take attendance, which they never had to do until recently. I haven't changed anything, but maybe a recent update might have triggered something. Pearson Support told me to change the time at School > Attendance Preferences > Interval Duration. This didn't work; teacher still has to log in. Any ideas? Not a pressing issue. TIA.

Ours is doing the same thing only it's also logging out Admin too. I went in and change the Time Out to 90 minutes and it is still logging us out after about 15-20 minutes. I guess I will need to call tech support :(

If teachers were to take attendance via their gradebooks, it looks like you can make the sort of desired setting via PT Administrator>Gradebooks>Preferences.  But that might log you out after a few minutes regardless of what you set as well.

Of course, the value of a secure website is diminished if it is just left open on desktops all day, including when teachers may not be in their rooms monitoring their computers.

We are experiencing the same thing.  My teachers started coming to me on Monday with this issue.  I tried adjusting the settings as well with no luck.
